Hong Kong's First University Trained Chinese Dentist.
DDS (Penn.) 1899.
HONG KONG nlt.1901. Admitted to practice dentistry in Hong Kong 1901, continued until 1934. Registered dental surgeon 1914-34, one of the first eight dentists registered with the government following the regulation of the practice of dentistry on May 7, 1914. Whereabouts after 1934 unknown.
 Chu Sien-ting 徐善亭 received dental education in Australia and started practicing in Hong Kong in 1880s. He could precede Chaun as Hong Kong's first University trained dentist, unfortunately, I was unable to identify the college Chu attended and the exact year in which he began his practice in Hong Kong.
 Chaun was the first Chinese student matriculated at the University of Pennsylvania as well as its first Chinese graduate.
 There were no formal qualification requirements for dentist to practice in Hong Kong before 1914; the first Dentistry Ordinance was enacted on June 5, 1914. The admittance was made by Chaun's Westerner peers, most of them were Penn. alumni. As a group, they almost functioned as a guild.]
 The first dental surgeons registered with the government following the enactment of the Dentistry Ordinance 1914: Mehdy Edward Asger, Arthur de Carvalho, Chaun Moon Hung 周夢熊, Edward Evan Jones, Frederick Howard Kew, Irvin Whiteley Kew, George Wiliam McKean, and Joseph Whittlesey Noble. Chu Sien-ting, mentioned earlier, wasn't one of them since he died in 1912.
